The other day I went on to the Rearz website to order a case of diapers and some extra stuff like a snap suit, and some diaper covers, I noticed that they didn’t have any regular Safari diapers, and all that they had was the mega Safari, which is fine, because if I’m going to pay that much for a case, I want it to be super absorbent. I guess I’m just wondering if they are permanently replacing the regular Safari with the mega Safari?
 
Yeah I'm pretty sure it is. They recently added the mega title to a few other offerings. Instead of reinventing the wheel they just increased the the capacity of their flagship offering. Which I'm perfectly okay with. Safari is one of those diapers that I always love having around.

The trend is the higher the capacity the better. Idkw? Unfortunately that high capacity doesn't involve wicking. So technically it's really a waste of a diaper when only one area of the diaper absorbs to the leaking point while the rest of the diaper remains dry.

I would agree there. Wicking really suffers on some of the high capacity diapers. I truly don't mind paying a premium price, but I do expect quality at that point.
 
Yes, they recently upgraded their Inspire+ (plain white Safaris), Safari, and Dinosaur to 8500 mL capacity. The last time I ordered a case of Safaris there was no mention of it on the product page, except the capacity under the details section was listed as 8500 mL. I don't think they were even listed as Mega Safari at the time. I wasn't sure if it was a mistake or not so I e-mailed Rearz about it. Jacob replied to me and said they were doing a soft launch to get community feedback before they announced it. Now they have an official announcement on their website and the descriptions are updated on the Mega products.

I just went through almost a full case of the new Mega Safaris, and have another case on the way. Safari was always my favorite diaper so I was worried when they were changed. After using them however, I find they fit and feel exactly like the old Safaris when dry. So if you like those you should enjoy the new ones. I think they basically took the old ones and added more/better sap. They swell as much as the Critter Caboose, so they're not very discreet. The original ones weren't exactly discreet either so that's not an issue for me. I just wear something thinner outside of the house.

After using them for over a month now I can say they work very well! After getting used to the higher capacity of the newer Rearz diapers like Alpaca and Critter Caboose, I started to find the old Safaris a little lacking. I even had a few leaks with the older ones when I wet too heavily. The new ones absorb rapidly and keep you feeling dry. They start to swell right away but I don't have any issues with the wicking. I usually wear for an extended period so I wet while lying down or lift my butt to wet while sitting, so I can use the padding at the back more. I usually have them pretty evenly wet right to the back by the time I change.

I tested out their capacity a few times. I can wear one for over 16 hours while drinking lots of water, before the swelling starts to get uncomfortable and make the diaper tight. I can go to bed in a wet diaper and use it in the morning without any fear of leaking. I weighed one once after I changed and I had over 3L of liquid in there with no leaks! If someone wants a diaper for extended wear or just extra protection overnight these are great for that!

yeah, that’s what I figured and to the last guy that posted about this you mentioned some of the exact things that I was wanting out of the higher capacity safari diapers. I did notice the same as you that the regular Safari weren’t doing as good as I thought they used to or maybe it was just because I was comparing them to higher capacity diapers, I wear them for extended period of time also. While either out at concerts, or using them overnight, both situations in a sitting position or in a laying down position. It’s definitely helpful to have that extra absorbent padding especially in the back of the diaper. I have left a couple times with regular Safari while using them overnight . I too have gotten used to the higher capacity stuff like alpaca and critter caboos so to have Safari just changed over to be super absorbent is great for me. They were always my favorite Diapers anyways, lions and zebras, and all those kind of animals. I’m still waiting for the old big cat diaper but I don’t know if that will ever happen. is, now I will just go with alpaca and mega Safari. if I want something a little more discrete with out, having to worry about leaks, I will just go with the InControl original, looks like that’s gonna be my combination of Diapers from now on.
